SEOUL : Kuwait has awarded South Korea’s Hyundai Engineering & Construction a contract for the development of seven port berths at a cost of around 48.7 million Kuwaiti dinars ($160 million), a newspaper in the Gulf country reported .

The Kuwait Ports Authority (KPA) awarded the contract for the “rehabilitation and development” of the berths at Mina Al-Shuwaikh in the capital Kuwait City, the Arabic language daily Alanba said, quoting official sources.
